State 4-H Poster, Photo and Writing Expressive Arts Contests 2019

As a positive youth development organization, 4-H strives to provide research-based curricula and resources for youth programming. The goal of communications and expressive arts activities is to provide a forum for youth to share their interpretation of "What Do You See?" and self-expression in photography, posters and writing.

This year, 4-H members will have the opportunity to submit posters, photos, and creative writing pieces to be judged at the county level. Top county winners will be sent on to state competitions. State winners will have their pieces displayed at the State Fair of WV and will receive both State 4-H and State Fair ribbons for their work, as well as State Fair premiums.
